safe & sound.

since my last post, i can officially say i've experienced my first hurricane. our home has no major damage and we had no flooding (we live 1 mile from the water!). pretty amazing!

sunday night, we packed up the essentials to head over to a friend's house higher & more inland. 
{makeup remover wipes, toiletries, my art journal & an envelope of secret messages}

our beautiful host, mary beth, cooked the most delicious chicken and rice soup (simmering on the stove minutes before the power went out). we shared the meal by candlelight. 

i truly found so much peace in art journaling last night. the winds were gusting as we listened to a crank radio. and i was cutting, and gluing, and arranging...

a huge tree uprooted by our friend's home. so grateful it fell that way.

today i got the urge to clean and bake. nothing like homemade chocolate chip cookies.

these were two of the most famous pictures from our city here in connecticut. lots of flooding, trees down, damage to homes and many families still without power. 

as i intermittently sneaked a peak at instagram, twitter or facebook throughout the past few days (trying to conserve my cell phone battery) i was overwhelmed with the amount of love + prayers people from all over the world were sending me. i could feel the well wishes and intercession. i am grateful for the beautiful community of women i have found online. thanks to each and every one of you. <3

i am continuing to pray for those with damage to their homes and who remain without power. grateful to be snuggled up in my own bed tonight, with a roof over my head, safe and sound.
